Hi @haaris

ENS still uses mcshield as the scanner service. There are also component related services such as mfetp (the Threat Prevention process). What makes this harder to achieve with ENS is the added self protection layer - this along with Access Protection would need to be disabled for you to be able to restart the services. This would however mean loss of a major security benefit of ENS if disabled. 

So no, there is no easy way of achiving your goal as you did with VSE.

You can stop the mcshield process if you disable Access Protection and Self Protection. But otherwise no.
